Each one of my paintings represents hours of work, a lot of doubts and a few certainties, a part of me.

My story, my background

It is at 35 years old that painting presented itself to me as a lack. With a law degree and after 10 years of office work, I decided to take a career break and devote myself to painting, which had been a simple hobby until then. From then on, I never stopped. I paint with acrylic and concentrate my work on the material, the search for colors and contrasts. My paintings are abstract although sometimes you can see landscapes, silhouettes, or whatever the subjective imagination will decide. The repetition of small volumes in sticks or mosaic creates a rhythm and the aspect of a weaving that often gives the desire to be touched.
